The Regenerated CO2 Neutral concept: reworked fibres to create new and high end textile.
One of C.L.A.S.S’s newest material partners is CARDATO with its REGENERATED CO2 NEUTRAL concept. Designed to offer fabrics that are comfortable to wear and which respect the environment, over 23 companies have joined together in this initiative. Using mixed textile waste as well as off cuts from factories, the textiles are selected for their fibre type and colour and then reworked to create new and high end textiles. Fabric and yarn producers such as: Industria Tessuti Pratesi Spa, Lanificio Balli S.p.A., Manifattura Del Prato S.r.l., G.M.G. Filati Stock Service S.r.l. have already introduced Cardato Regenerated CO2 Neutral in their collections.
Working together in the same region of Prato, this inspiring group of mills and weavers has received a special accolade and certification from the Prato Chamber of Commerce for the resulting products, for their zero emissions. Since the start of the project over 3516 tonnes of CO2 have been compensated for.
The Cardato Regeneration Group will be featuring some of their latest developments at Premiere Vision from the 20th of September and on the 22nd of September they will present a special concept at 100% Design London called “Rethinking the Product”.
